One of the main threats of the Karrnathi Necorlab is an Iron Dragon driven mad by a corrupted Dragonmark that appeared in the bowels of the lab (the dragon had originally come to the lab to witness the emergence of the Dragonmark, which had been forseen as part of the Draconic Prophecy).

The encounter with him takes place in a huge chamber used to store Karnnathi zombies in giant alchemical vats hung like pearls on a chain. Vylymax opens the encounter using his Sound spells to spook the guys, alternating between Silence, Thunderclap, Voice and Blackout.

Once the guys are suitably freaked out, Vylymax starts cutting the chains holding the vats, forcing the guys to make Perception checks to hear the sound of snapping chains followed by Dodge checks to dive out of the way (or take 2d6 cr). Once the vats hit the groud, a three hex mob of zombies spills out.

Once this gets boring (or once the guys get too banged up), Vylymax flies down to engage them.
